Firefighter or not?

Postby epipeinfo » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:58 pm

Most of us remember hearing about the 14-year-old junior firefighter who was killed while riding his bike on the way to a call last spring. It seems that the local and state authorities awarded LODD benefits to his family. The federal government, however, does not recognize him as a firefighter.

Personally, I was torn at first. He was a junior firefighter. However, from all accounts he was a responsible and enthusiastic member of the fire department. Even at his young age, he was dedicated to serving his community. That's a firefighter.
